Please note NEW VACCINATION POLICY AS OF JULY 1, 2019

Mansfield Pediatrics Vaccination Policy

After careful thought and consideration, Mansfield Pediatrics is strengthening its vaccination policy.  This new standard reflects current recommendations from three leading health authorities:  the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Our new policy:

  • As of July 1, 2019, Mansfield Pediatrics will no longer accept new patients with parents/guardians that will not permit vaccination or that wish to significantly delay vaccination.
  • For current patient families with unvaccinated children, Mansfield Pediatrics requests that unimmunized or partially immunized children start a catch-up vaccination schedule.  Families will have one year from July 1, 2019 to get up to date on vaccines.  Parents/guardians who are unwilling to commit to a vaccination schedule will need to find another provider outside of Mansfield Pediatrics.
  • Mansfield Pediatrics will continue to accept new pediatric patients and retain established pediatric patients who either have compromised immune systems or documented adverse reactions to vaccines.  Our providers will work with those patients on an individual basis.

Mansfield Pediatrics’ primary concern is the safety of all our patients.  We consider all children who are not vaccinated according to AAP, CDC, and ACIP guidelines as “unvaccinated.”  The vaccination policy has been revised so that our clinic will not pose health risks to our most vulnerable patients: infants who are too young to be immunized and children who have weakened immune systems.

Parents/guardians of patients who have already complied with the recommended vaccines need not be concerned about any needed “catch up.”  Parents of patients who have chosen to delay vaccines or alter their vaccine schedules should check the attached recommendation for childhood vaccinations.  If your child is behind, make an appointment with your provider to discuss the needed vaccines and their recommendations for catch up in a timely fashion.

We are privileged to be your pediatricians and feel that this policy will ensure that we are providing the best care for all the wonderful children in our practice.

Sincerely,

Drs. Kerstin Archer, Melody Burton, Janet Kinney and Michelle O’Connor, PNP
